Question about Hotpoint FFA80 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Temperature guage does not show temperature - instead flashes "EA" continuously. I know the simple solution to this problem is in the owners handbook (which I have lost) as I fixed it myself a couple of years ago by following the instructions in the handbook. Canyou help?

Power indicator /red/ and warning led/red/ are lighting after ea 15 sec. a lamp never start and fans goes in OFF mode. I checked power supply lines S5V,S-5V,S16V on the Main Board . I checked unit lamp...

If power indicator light red and warning indicator red flashing than according to user manual :-
The projector has been cooled down enough and the temperature returns to normal. When turning ON the projector the WARNING indicator stops flashing. CHECK AND CLEAN THE AIR FILTER.
Experience:- 1. if the temperature is very low than temperature sensor maybe misbehave.
2. If anyone fan not working
so please you check fans.
(If lamp or lamp ballast unit faulty than after a time period the lamp indicator light ON not a warning indicator. I experience many times if any fan in projector are broken or jamed the temperature light if present otherwise warning light ON or flashing)

A flashing orange symbol shows up on dash panel and I don't know what it is-\r\n--can u show me some examples so that I may know what it means? 2000Dodge Intrepid

I don't have any pictures but if it's flashing it's probably the check engine light (some vehicles show this as a symbol instead of the words). If it is and it's flashing, that indicates the engine is missfiring and could potentially damage the catalytic converters. A diagram of all the warning lights is shown in the owners manual with a nice description

How do i know if its my temperature sensor, or heating elemnet that isn't working?

HI. You can administer a simple continuity test on the element to confirm failure. A burned out element will show no continuity, when measured. As for the sensor, A simple resistance test can confirm functionality in this case.

The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:

100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms

If the sensor resistance is lower than 1100 ohms, This will confirm that the sensor is faulty. If it is higher than 1949 ohms, this will confirm failure, as well. replace it in this case.

Temperature Guage

You either have an electrical short to the gauge or your temperature sensor on the motor is "out to lunch". Try to manually get your motor temperature with some other sort of thermometer. With a cold engine take the radiator cap off and make sure it is full. Then place a thermometer in being sure to touch the fluid(may sound dumb but don't drop it in the radiator). Start the engine and allow it to come up to operating temperature. Approximately 190 to 200 degrees. Your thermostat should be open at this point and you should notice a flow to the radiator fluid. If the temp holds then you have one of the aforementioned problems. If you have a Haynes manual it should tell you how to troubleshoot the temperature sensor. I believe that I am leaning towards an electrical short of some sort though. An improper ground perhaps. Check and see if there are any fuses that control this system. Once again, the Haynes manual has wiring diagrams that will show you what wires to chase. And it is a chase. wiring problems are hard to find. If the temperature test pans out You may want to buy an after market temperature gauge and mount it up instead. Pull the plug on the old one and be on the road. You may have already solved this problem and I just wasted about five minutes of my life. If not and you have any questions e-mail me at [email protected] Have fun and be careful. 200 degree fluid is nothing to take lightly.

The temperature guage sensor is located on the thermostat housing. I would start simple and check the wiring. clean the connectors.
